This may have come up before and I missed it....

Has anyone tried these tires?

Shinko 241. Price seems to low to believe.

Thanks

They look the part but as you know thats not the crucial aspect...does it grip? :rolleyes:

It would be great if a new manufacturer could break the monopoly that Mich/Dunlop and IRC seem to have.

I see what you're getting at though...we need a pioneer to spend his own dosh ,give them a test and report back to TC.

All those willing to volunteer, take one step forward???

From the info on the website , they are based on 1998 yokohama technology !!??!!! ...

I don't remember a yoko trials tire , unless they were OE. on some enduro bikes ?

The rear Shinko tyre in the photo has a different aspect ratio (lower profile) to Michelin/Dunlop/IRC - looks more like MITAS

Lower profile = probably inferior to the name brand tyres on logs, rocks etc but probably OK for Dirt Track racing

I already wasted my money trying a MITAS so I'm not going to be the bunny
